  • cute and cosy

    "First of all Manteo is the best place to stay on the OBX. While the other towns have beaches they are more "honky tonk" in atmosphere. Manteo is a real town yet an easy drive to all the attractions. The Loft is in a great location-a short walk to the harborside amenities and totally comfortable. The outside porch provided a pleasant place for evening wine and cheese. We ate in twice and our only criticism was the lack of basic pantry supplies. Salt and pepper were provided but nothing else. Many rentals in our past experiences had oil, a few spices, etc. Enough to make a decent meal without having to pay to outfit a pantry. But we made due and had a wonderful time."

  • Exceptionally clean; extremely accommodating

    "Papillon is a clean, very well equipped home that is perfect for all members of the family. The home has something for everyone to relax and have fun. With a very short walk to the beach (and no tall dunes to hike up), you can't go wrong by choosing Papillon for your next stay in Avon. I have vacationed on Hatteras Island every year of my life and have never felt more at home than I have at this home. Additionally, the owners are friendly, caring, and accommodating. Thank you, Bill and Angie! Our winter stay made us love our favorite place on Earth even more! We will most definitely be back to your home soon. Until next time... :)"

  • Memorial Weekend/Week Trip

    "My group of 9 friends stayed here for Memorial Day weekend and for the rest of the week afterwards. The house was gorgeous and was very clean and very well-maintained- we loved it! The layout of the house is kind of confusing to figure out from the photos. The house itself is 3 stories: the first floor is where the laundry (there is an extra fridge in there, by the way), the little red nook with tv, and the pool table are. The second floor is the bunk bedroom (not pictured), the grey bedroom (queen bed, blue bedspread; with attached bathroom), the yellow bedroom (queen bed, with attached bathroom), the green bedroom (king bed), and then a large bathroom, which our bunk bedroom and green bedroom residents shared. The third floor is the main living area with the grey master bedroom (king bed, green bedspread; large attached bathroom), a small purple bathroom, the kitchen, and the screen porch off the dining area. A really great part of the house is the outside wood porches that go from the top floor all the way to the bottom floor- you can see them in the picture of the rear of the house. The photo of the bottom floor door by the porch swing is the entrance we mainly used. The house is very close to the beach-it was just a short 3 min walk down Second Street and the beach entrance is very conveniently right there. There are lots of restaurants and other activities close by. While we were there, we went to I Got Your Crabs Shellfish Market and Oyster Bar for dinner one night, went mini-golfing another night, went to the movies on Friday night, the girls went shopping at the outlet malls, the boys went golfing at Holly Ridge golf course, we went to Jennette's Pier further down the road in Nags Head, and went paddle-boarding at a place across from J's Pier. The owner was super helpful is suggesting places to eat and how to navigate the area, etc. He was really quick to respond to texts and phone calls. We definitely recommend this property to everyone, they just can't rent the week we want it, because we are definitely renting again!"

  • Suzan is the best!

    "We use to rent one of Suzan's other houses Parrots Perch and were sad when we found out she sold it! When I contacted her she told me about Easy Landing......and as always it did not disappoint! Easy landing is close to everything! Perfect location! And Suzan is a true gem to work with! You will not be disappointed if you choose easy landing! We will be back!"

Northern Coast & Outer Banks Travel Tips

The Outer Banks is a glorious stretch - 200 miles, to be exact - of barriers islands and peninsulas along the North Carolina coast. Though it boasts magnificent beaches, there’s plenty to do here year-round.

What to Do

The options are nearly endless in the Outer Banks.

- Take a hike at the Fort Raleigh National Historic Site on the northern end of Roanoke Island and visit the beautiful Elizabethan Gardens - a memorial to the first colonists.

- Immerse yourself in the history of flight at the Wright Brothers National Memorial and Museum in Kill Devil Hills, just south of Kitty Hawk.

- Visit the North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island to feed stingrays, pet an alligator, learn about sea turtle rescues and be wowed by the largest group of captive sharks in North Carolina.

- Go Kayaking or take stand up paddleboarding lessons in Kitty Hawk Bay from Kitty Hawk Kites or Kitty Hawk Surf Company.

- Do something extreme at Jockey’s Ridge State Park. There are awesome sand dunes here - if you know how to sand-board, get a permit and come here between October 1 and March 31. You can also take hang-gliding lessons from Kitty Hawk Kites and soar over Jockey’s Ridge, or go windsurfing in the shallow Roanoke Sound.

- Play a game of golf at any of the excellent courses, from the Currituck Club up in Corolla all the way down to Nags Head Golf Links.

What to See

The Outer Banks offer miles of scenic beauty and historic treasures.

- See the many historic lighthouses on the coast. Make sure you have your walking shoes on when you climb Cape Hatteras Lighthouse on Hatteras Island - it has 248 stairs on an iron spiral staircase, the equivalent of climbing 12 stories! After all of your work, you’ll be rewarded with a stunning view of the Atlantic. You can also visit the Ocracoke Lighthouse on Ocracoke Island at the very southern point of the Outer Banks, or head to the northernmost point to learn the sordid and mysterious history of the Currituck Beach Lighthouse in Corolla.

- Visit the Roanoke Settlement Site, the first English colony in the New World and learn about the mysteries of The Lost Colony. It’s an educational experience with games and woodworking to show what life was like back then. You can also visit and board a replica of the Elizabeth II, one of the boats that arrived in the New World in 1585. There’s plenty of activities for both kids and adults to enjoy here. In the summer, the play “The Lost Colony” is performed to educate and entertain.

- Check out the views from Jockey’s Ridge and Jennette’s Pier, both in Nags Head. Sunsets here are simply unmatched.

Events

There are plenty of festivals in the Outer Banks that harness its unique heritage and location. Check out the Bluegrass Island Festival, a newer addition to the fall lineup held the first weekend in October. It features Bluegrass by traditional artists as well as younger revival artists. Don’t forget to come for the homey Southern-style cooking!

The Outer Banks Seafood Festival is another fest celebrating coastal heritage. It’s held for one weekend in mid-October every year in Nags Head across the Roanoke Sound. Aside from enjoying various local seafood and cooking demonstrations, visitors can participate in the Fish House Olympics, including a Mullet Toss - the fish, not the hairstyle - and crab races. There’s also live music and a Dock & Dine event hosted by The Dunes Restaurant.
